Luca Campigotto (born 1962) has been photographing dramatic natural settings since the 1980s, from the indian deserts to the white vistas of Lapland, and historical sites from Angkor to Easter Island.
Gotham City presents the photographs Campigotto has taken in and of New York.
This is a Gotham City reconstructed from memory, often infused with a glassy light and an atmosphere sometimes glowing with vivid colors, other times wrapped in muted hues.
It is a sentimental journey in the Big Apple of our imagination, from the East River bridges to the Empire State Building, from the Guggenheim Museum to Canal Street, from Times Square to the old docks of Brooklyn, each shimmering image looking like the backdrop for a movie or comic book.
The limited edition of Gotham City includes a signed and numbered print.
